Investment Team

​Joseph E. Ireland, CFA is the Founder and CEO of JEI Investment Management, LLC.

Before founding JEI Investment Management, Joe worked at RBC Capital Markets in Los Angeles, where he wrote a daily investment letter and served institutional clients. Previously, Joe worked at Citigroup Corporate and Investment Banking, Wachovia Securities and Stifel, Nicolaus and Company. 

An avid investor, Joe bought his first stock, Starbucks, at age fifteen. Over the years, Joe has successfully developed a disciplined framework for investing in stocks that exhibit strong free cash flow growth but trade at a discount to their fundamental value, a methodology he calls free cash flow growth at a reasonable price (FCF GARP). He is applying this approach in managing funds on behalf of JEI Investment Management.
